Parker leaving local Fox TV affiliate

April 1, 2010

After more than 16 years at Fox59, anchor Cheryl Parker is leaving the station to be with her husband and their twin, 20-month-old daughters.  "This is an extremely difficult decision," said Parker. "However, my family has to come first."  Parker started at Fox59 as a reporter before becoming the station's weekend anchor. She later joined Bob Donaldson and Brian Wilkes, who have been together for 13 years, making them the longest-running anchor team in central Indiana. She will remain with the station through the May sweeps period, with her final night being May 26.
